Continuity mistake: When Oliver first meets Fagin, he says " aren't we, my dears?" Dodger replies "'course we are Fagin" Dodger then looks up at Fagin and stops smiling. But when the camera zooms in, he does the same thing again, you can tell by his expression that it is the same shot but from a different angle.

Continuity mistake: The final participants in the spectacular "Who Will Buy?" scene are the soldiers who make up the band and the platoon it leads. As they make their first appearance, the band is leading the platoon, and in blazing sunshine. By the end of the scene, it is overcast, and the platoon soldiers are now leading the band.

Continuity mistake: Just before "Be back soon", Dodgers asks Fagin if Oliver can go out with him and Charlie, earlier we see that Charlie is a small boy with dark hair and a black bakerboy hat. This same boy tells Dodger and Oliver to hurry up at the very end of "Be back soon". But when they arrive in London, Charlie is now someone different. He has a different shaped face and a different outfit. You see this boy earlier, claiming the sausages are mouldy, but there he has blonde hair.

Continuity mistake: During the 'who will buy' scene, the window cleaners come into shot and pitch their ladders to the balcony. The cleaners are beating the carpets over the balcony, and in the same shot you can see the ladders are not attached to the balcony. When the window cleaners climb the ladders and dismount, at the top you can see the ladders are now attached to the balcony with brackets.
